McLennan County I-35 Bridge Expansion

McLennan County I-35 Bridge Expansion

Waco, Texas

Construction began in July 2012 on two bridges in Waco, Texas over the Brazos River and is expected to be complete by the fall of 2014. This project will increase I-35 to three lanes each way to ease congestion in the area by extending the frontage lanes over the river.

The bridge is a unique design known as an “extradosed bridge” that will be unlike all other bridges in Texas and there are only two such bridges in the United States. This type of bridge is a hybridge between a standard girder bridge and a cable suspension bridge. There will also be 46 ft. twin towers, lights and a walking trail that will connect to the existing riverwalk below.

Britt Sims (24) worked closely with our vendor David Stevens with OCM to sell all the overhang brackets on this bridge project to Lane Construction. In addition, Britt has also supplied embed hangers, waterstop, Shepler’s Premium Release SB, power tools and wall ties on the project.

Thanks to Britt Sims (24) for his work on this project.
